Glo & Ray Monday*


I think one thing we can all agree on, is that Monday is not cool. Sitting at your desk every Monday morning at 9am - faced with a pile of work as high as the Blackpool Tower - is not the one and should actually be classed as illegal / recognised as the barbaric practice it actually is. 

Granted, there's nothing I can do to change this fact - and even if we did ban Mondays, we'd soon find something else to moan about - but I have got a little bit of sparkle and glitter to throw over this particular dose of the Monday Morning Blues [MMB, a recognised condition in my eyes] from Glo & Ray. There are no words worthy for the beauty you're about to see - these products are legit visual perfection and no words I can even think of do them justice. I guess I'm best off just announcing that you need to prepare yourself to witness the fitness - and the pigmentation nation - that's about to hit down in LLL Blog town. And to make sure you're sitting down; cos jaws are about to hit floors here.

Glo & Ray are a brand that I've heard of before and always loved the sound of - I was actually lucky enough to get my hands on one of their beautifully precise liquid eyeliners in a previous month's Roccabox before this cheeky collab came about. Which meant that I couldn't have been any more excited to work with these guys, when that fateful email pinged through. 

In case you haven't been lucky enough to hear about this fab beauty company before, here's a smidge of their backstory. I feel it's probably best to drop this in now, before I go full on rogue with swatches, photos galore, shouts of PIGMENTATION and overexcited / giddy swearing. Cos it's going to happen. And you'll soon see why. New fave brand alert!!

Glo & Ray are a UK based company; who draw the inspiration for their truly beautiful products from the natural wonder of light. Their name is actually derived from the words Glo - which is a gentle luminescence and Ray; a vibrant beam of light. The brand look to channel and enhance every woman's natural radiance, delivering a stunning makeup collection to illuminate individual beauty.

I was lucky enough to get my mitts on some of their brand new product releases recently; which you may have seen plastered across my Instagram; as *spoiler alert* I'm 10000000% obsessed with them. These were three pots of Glo & Ray's exclusive Pure Galaxy Eye Pigments* and their beautiful new Gold Fever Lipstick* - and to say that I can't cope with their intense levels of beauty is an understatement. And you're about to see why.

Shades : More Electric - A buildable neon purple | Goldmaniac - A copper-gold delight | Dazzle Dazzle - An intense rose gold
Available : from July 2017

Wow. There are few other words that spring to mind [other than HOLY SH*T!!] when you first clap eyes on these incredible pigments. They're truly breath-taking. They shimmer, sparkle, illuminate and glisten to give the eyes an intense metallic lustre. And their colour pay-off is so intense, you can easily use them to create boho, glittery Festival looks this Summer - which will last for hours and hours.

A little really goes a long way with these incredible pigments; leaving your eyes glowing with a stunning foil effect finish. Use alone for a shimmering translucent colour or add a little water to create a creamy metallic formula.

These intensely metallic, velvet soft pigments are just incredible. Each of them blows my mind - daily. Dazzle Dazzle is the lightest shade out of the three; making it the most versatile in terms of being able to work it into a multitude of makeup looks. Goldmaniac is my absolute favourite; it's a beautiful warm colour which complements the matte shades in my Modern Renaissance palette perfectly. And More Electric - just wow! I can't think of any better shade for Festival Season 2017.

The colour pay-off on each of these pigments is goals AF. You can literally drop the tiniest bit of pigment onto the skin and drag it for the most intense burst of metallic colour. I've never owned anything quite like these Pure Galaxy pots; their staying power and formula is at least 500% better than any other loose pigments I've tried before.

As you may be able to tell, I'm legit in love with these new Pure Galaxy Pigments. They apply incredibly well, they're TOO PIGMENTED TO COPE and I adore their minimal glass packaging / Glo & Ray's minimal branding. These beautiful, shimmery pots of triumph are priced at £12.90 each and they've just launched on the Glo & Ray website. Get on that hype, gals!

Gold Fever Lipstick*, £12.00
Available : July 2017

I nearly wept when I popped the lid off this lippy for the first time. Just look at it. I'm as basic as they come... and seeing a stunning shimmery, rose gold lipstick like this nearly caused my inner cliché blogger girl to explode in excitement / triumph. And the surprises just keep coming, once applied.

This highly pigmented, shimmery and buttery-soft lipstick is covered in gold frosting, which makes it look actually gold plated... but which turns into a sumptuous red on application; which shimmers with a subtle gold tinge. Plot twist or what?! This beautiful product was inspired by the element of gold itself and the human race's obsession with this precious metal. A bit like Gollum and that bloody ring!

This stunning new release from Glo & Ray is hydrating and long lasting; providing the lips with intense levels of colour. I'm kinda starting to get bored with matte lipsticks now [anyone else?] and this lovely, velvety-creamy lippy is a nice breath of fresh air into my [somewhat stale] life. Its bold red formula exudes radiance with just a smidge of gold; perfect for warm Summer evenings and glowy Holiday makeup.
